Metal prince rupert's drop?

  1. Sep 29, 2015 #1
    i am wondering would that be possible to make a prince rupert's drop with metal..

    would it end up having similar properties? (ie high compressive stress => stronger) or does molten metal flow too quickly?

    Could you please give some context and background, so that folks don't have to go searching Google to figure out what you are asking? Thanks.

    Maybe if you could induce a martensitic transition or a strain glass during cooling. Not sure you could get sufficient cooling, tho.
